For myself, I'm researching new floor polish powders: so far I have tested ground coffee, flour, & dried parsley!

Oh yes, floor cleaner research update:
Liquid floor cleaners researched include coffee, water, soda pop, tea (hot or cold), fruit juices, and plain ole water.
Method of application: just give me a cup or glass to carry somewhere, and I will apply at least 1/2 of it to the floor.
Actually, most times I have found that I can avoid spilling by moving my arm up & down slightly while carrying a liquid. Also if I just start with the glass half full (remember, I'm an optimist), then I have a better chance of keeping the tremor-induced whirlpool from swirling over the brim.

@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member - thanks for sharing...and double thanks for a smile, a chuckle..and let me add this

A man somehow plunged off a tall building and some people who were on different floors when the man fell past their windows were discussing it.-

"He said what??? That was the same thing I heard," remarked one, and the others nodded soberly in agreement. A person who had not witnessed the event listened with increasing frustration and finally blurted,

"The same as he passed each floor? What was it he said???"

The answer chorused "So far, so good!" One added, "he was a REAL optimist."

It's part of the philosophy Jeannie and I have shared through her cancer, my PD...and fifty-eight plus years of marriage - "So far, so good" It's not a bad way to feel...

One night I was at a movie with my partner who also has PD. We were both due for a sinemet and we both dropped them on the floor. We were bending down to find them and banged our heads together. It was a serious movie but we were laughing 😂 so hard we were crying.
